A compelling way to add a huge external screen to the latest MacBook Air and MacBook Pro laptops.
The Apple Thunderbolt Display offers some useful expansion, and could make a seamless one-stop solution to enable Apple MacBooks to benefit from a huge screen and some invaluable port expansion. Yet the final verdict could go either way. We cannot work with gloss panels - but if you can tolerate a reflective screen, its feature-packed specification and unmatched build quality speak for themselves.
Single cable from Mac cuts down clutter
For owners of the 2011 MacBook Air, the Thunderbolt Display is a fantastic way to get iMac-like features while still being able to walk away with one of the lightest laptops available. If your Mac has Thunderbolt, FireWire 800, and gigabit ethernet, the case for buying the comparatively inflexible Thunderbolt display is a little less interesting.
Well-equipped 27in monitor.
Oh oh so lovely. Oh oh so expensive. What else is there to say? It's an Apple product, which means is's built to a standard that makes you wet your pants but priced to tighten your scrotum. Just keep in mind that a Thunderbolt Display needs a Thunderbolt Mac, and I wish there were more Thunderbolt peripherals to make me feel better about the whole Thunderbolt thing. If there were, and the display was about £150 cheaper, I'd rate it at 90 per cent or higher.
LED backlit - uses less energy than CCFL-based competitors
The LG E2260V-PN is a computer monitor built to be compatible with most systems and simple to operate. This is similar to the LG E2360V-PN, but has a 22 inch screen. They share all other features, including a full 1080p resolution and inputs for D-Sub, DVI-D and HDMI.
